Intergenerationality is a great challenge for all developed countries, as the elderly population is growing, both in terms of their age and of their percentage presence in our societies. The solidarity between different generations is becoming so important that we can consider intergenerational dialogue a fundamental goal for us to aim at, developing those skills that allow us to act properly as citizens in the “ageing societies”. Any context and activity with an educational purpose (formal or not formal) should deal with intergenerational dialogue.
The article first suggests some reflections on the main theoretical issues that put intergenerationality at the core of the educational debate on elderly education. Once the theoretical background has been outlined, it presents an analysis of some educational contexts and activities aimed at developing intergenerational activities.
